Over at AC.SE we are having a discussion about the block quote markup which has lead me to realize I do not understand when things should be quoted. I think I have four questions. My first question is:
Is using a block quote here inappropriate?
My second question is
Is using a block quote here when there is no preceding colon inappropriate?
My third question is: "do I need quotes here"?
My final question is "do I need quotes when there is no colon"?
